We want to participate in stimulating the economy on a local as well as a national level
New York, New York (PRWEB) March 19, 2009
In an effort to help promote New York City sightseeing and tourism in NYC, the NY SKYRIDE, one of New York's premium attraction and New York's only virtual tour simulator, is offering free tickets to the famed Empire State Building Observatory. These free tickets are available automatically when purchasing a full priced SKYRIDE ticket online on NY SKYRIDE's website.
The Empire State Building and its Observatory is one of the most iconic structures in the world and over 3.5 million people come to visit yearly. The NY SKYRIDE, located on the second floor of the Empire State Building, provides an exciting and informative large screen format adventure through the city, all narrated by actor Kevin Bacon. Best of all, guests with both, NY SKRIDE and Empire State Building tickets, bypass most of the waiting time at the building with the Fast Track program.
Myron Baer, VP Business Development at the SKYRIDE says the impetus to offer the free Observatory tickets came as a direct result of the declining economy. "We want to participate in stimulating the economy on a local as well as a national level", Baer says.
Besides the ticket promotion other online tools, like NY SKYRIDE's new Vacation Planner tool are even providing travelers with planning tips and discounts for New York sightseeing trips. Visitors simply answer a few questions about travel dates and number of travelers in the group, provide their email address, and NY SKYRIDE will keep travelers updated on the latest specials around the Big Apple, as well as send them printable discounts on many associated NYC attractions courtesy of MiniCards.
NY SKYRIDE has quickly become a top New York city sightseeing experience not soon to be forgotten by student and family travelers. NY SKYRIDE is the perfect student trip and educational destination with their new city and state approved curriculum and walking tours downloadable from their site. The new Empire State Pub Crawl is also proving to be popular among tourists as well.
